Petit St. Vincent Resort in Petit Saint Vincent, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Softly undulating hills covered by lush tropical foliage meet sugary white beaches on the dreamy 115-acre private island of Petit St. Vincent. This idylic island, also known as PSV, lies about 40 miles south of Saint Vincent in the Caribbean isles of the Grenadines. All 22 generously spaced, freestanding villas and cottages at this chic ecologically sustainable resort front the beach or are scattered around the island's bluffs boasting magnificent ocean views. Plushly designed lounges, indoor and outdoor dining areas, sun decks or gardens afford utmost privacy. Modern comforts include air conditioning, Bose iPod docking stations, Nespresso machines, and high-end bath amenities and towels. Purposely, the villas and cottages have no televisions or Internet connectivity for a chance to truly unplug from the stressful daily grind for a while.
With a two-to-one staff-to-guest ratio, the exclusive barefoot escape offers attentive, tailor-made services. Active guests can rent sail boats or kayaks from the water sports center to troll the crystalline turquoise waters, jog along the outdoor calisthenics fitness trail or play a round of tennis on the lighted tennis court. Zen-seekers may try no-impact workouts at the two secluded Yoga Pavilions facing Conch Bay or be pampered at the treetop Balinese-managed Hillside Spa in one of the four serene open-air rooms. Treatments like a Shirodhara Ayurvedic massage using a series of aromatic oils or a rejuvenating Marni Body Scrub with lemongrass; jasmine and ginger are guaranteed to soothe away pesky muscle aches. The luxury resort also has two dining options. Patrons at the more casual Beach Restaurant and Goatie's Bar can dig their toes in the sand while wielding an ice-cold locally brewed Hairoun Beer adjacent to the live lobster pool (Tip: Lobster season on the island runs from November until April). Elegant Pavilion Restaurant set atop a hill with views of the quaint harbor lends itself perfectly for a twosome romantic dinner. Gourmet cuisine at both eateries features fresh produce, herbs and even eggs from the resort's own organic garden and chickens. Slightly off the beaten path, this sundrenched tropical resort is the epitome of a luxe Caribbean hideaway.

Reviews for Petit St. Vincent Resort
We stayed here over close to a year ago and feel this is one of the best boutique resorts that we have ever stayed at. Bungalows were nice and clean with good air conditioning and views were spectacular. We enjoyed having breakfast in the rooms every morning with a view of the ocean. During the day you can either exercise on a nice jogging circuit or stake out a piece of beach for yourself. "Room service" is through a flag system and will deliver to essentially anywhere on the island (with a flag). For example, once you've set up on the isolated beach, put up your flag for some fresh lobster and rose to be delivered to you. Bar at the restaurant at night is a great place for drinks with some music (local bands). It was definitely a quiet resort but we always felt well attended to. We arranged one excursion on a sail boat which was pleasant. Would 100% stay here again and recommend it to others.

Finishing a cruise in Barbados we wanted to have a few days in peace and quiet in luxury and chose to stay on the Island of Petit St Vincent. We flew to Union Island where we were picked up by staff fro PSV and taken to the powerful motor launch to travel about 20 minutes to the private island of PSV. The minute we arrived we were greeted with a lovely cold Pina Colada and taken on a quick tour of the island by Mini Moke ! Our cottage was on the Atlantic side of the island right on the beach,it consisted of a spacious living room with dining table and two large settees and a large storage unit incorporating a fully stocked fridge.The bedroom had a very large double bed and was air conditioned. The shower room had his and hers washbasins ample storage units and a large wardrobe walk in shower with masses of hot water !! PSV operates a feature flag system to transmit your requirements to the staff which works well. We dined in both restaurants which were excellent with first class service from the lovely staff,food was absolutely delicious. Outside our cottage was some decking with another table and chairs and then the beach upon which we had our own hammock and two sun loungers under a thatched sun shade. No Radio,no tv or video WiFi only outside office so absolute peace and quiet although there are plenty of things to do, if you are so minded, from scuba and snorkelling to sailing and walking .The beach we were on was probably half a mile long and we only saw perhaps 6 or 7 people on it during the time we were there . Would I go again ? Yes please !

We stayed at PSV for 8 nights to celebrate a big birthday. It was our first stay on the island. It's not for everyone, but it suited us perfectly. The island itself is pristine, unspoilt, undeveloped and really very very lovely. The website does not do it justice. PSV is not somewhere to go if you like nightlife or lots of bling, but if you enjoy the simple pleasures of walking along beautiful beaches, swimming / snorkelling in warm sea, relaxing in a hammock on the beach, switching off from the world, drinking a great assortment of rum-based cocktails with BBQ'd lobster at the beach restaurant, or something more refined at the main restaurant, then PSV is for you. The food was great - we ate lobster on 7 of our 8 days there. There's also enough variety on the menu if you want a change. There are daily fish specials at the beach restaurant, and the menu changes daily in the main restaurant. The service is really friendly and of a high standard. The rooms are very clean. I particularly enjoyed the yoga classes, where I was the only person. We had a great day out sailing on Beauty to Tobago Cays where we saw a wild turtle eating turtle grass in the sea. We spent most of our days at the "West End", where there are a number of secluded places on the Caribbean side with hammocks/sunloungers and table/chairs set up for 2 (some are close, so larger groups would be fine). You can order drinks or lunch to come to your "hammock", using the flagpole system. Most of the cottages are on the windward side, which we were told was because the mosquitos are less of a problem and there is a nice breeze on the Atlantic side. Having said that, I did get bitten quite a bit, but I think that was when we were in the main restaurant / seating near the wifi. We were a bit unlucky with the weather and it was quite stormy (and the wind/waves were noisy) at night, but the weather in the day was perfect: not humid, not stiflingly hot, all with a gentle breeze.The sea was too rough for us to swim on the Atlantic beach in front of our cottage. The waiters said that the island was about 75% full, which surprised us as we barely saw anyone in the day and the restaurants weren't busy (even with a fair number of yachties in the beach restaurant). The lack of wifi and TVs in the rooms was not a problem for us. There is patchy 3G on the island from nearby Petite Martinique, so we were still contactable by our family, but were able to have a good digital detox from work. The only real cons were the journeys to and from the island - the Grenadine Airlines plane makes Rynnair look like a private jet, and it was cramped, sitting on benches (albeit with seatbelts), and quite "basic". We had a difficult journey home as British Airways "delayed" our flight for 36 hours, and "due to exceptional call volumes" didn't answer our calls for us to find out what our options were. However, with a little help from PSV's representative at Barbados airport, we managed to get seats on another flight back, albeit at the back of the plane. PSV is such an amazing place, that we feel that anywhere else will now be a disappointment! We will most certainly go back!

We just returned from a week vacation in this little slice of heaven. Pictures and reviews just could not fully describe this fantastic resort. After a couple of flights and a motor boat ride we arrived on the dock of PSV greeted by smiling staff with a fresh moist towel and a delicious pina colada. We were driven to our villa in a cute blue Flinstone-like mobile. Only 22 villas are located on this tropical island. Our accomodation was right on the ocean with beautiful views of the Atlantic. Several of the villas are higher up with fantastic views of the surrounding islands, sunrises and sunsets. Beautiful teak furniture, with comfortable beds and stylish bathrooms. No phones, radios or TV so bring your own music and books. We felt like the view from our villa was our natural TV. They utilize a flag system on the island to communicate with the staff. It usually works pretty good but don't be in a hurry. The staff is fantastic. They will all get to know you by your name, your likes and dislikes. Your are treated better than family. Never be afraid to ask for anything. I was shocked when I asked for some peanut butter and crakers and they brought some for a snack. One day we asked to go out to the smallest registered island in the world, Morpian, and the staff took us out on a motor boat with beers, water and snorkels. That was a fun time but no need to stay more than an hour or two. You have 2 locations for your meals, the main dining room and a waterside bar/restaurant/grill. They each have their own special ambience with wonderful service. The meals were outstanding. Plenty of fresh fish and large lobster tails. Fresh ingrediants with lots of fresh fruit. Plenty of selections are available even for those who are vegan or gluten intolerant. They have a wonderfully stocked wine cellar with a wide variety of varietals. Take time to choose your wine for you meal. There are so many good things to say about this little caribbean oasis. Just a few other recommendations: order coffee to arrive early in the morning to enjoy the sunrise, take a hike up Marni Hill but wear good shoes, enjoy some of the best snorkling, take a ride with Captain Jeff on the Beauty to Tobago Cay, schedule a massage or two up in the treehouse spa, arrange a dinner on Lookout Hill and lastly enjoy the beautiful warm ocean breezes. This will be a vacation you will always remember.

I will never go back to the Caribbean unless we spend time in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. I know that sounds dramatic and probably wonâ€™t be true but there is simply no place I have been to outside of the Great Barrier Reef that is more relaxing, beautiful and exotic. From Tobago Cay and itâ€™s stunning aqua green waters and turtle reserve to Mayreau and itâ€™s beautiful beaches to Bequia you canâ€™t find a more beautiful country to relax and unwind in.
